Galaxy S21 5G is SPECsational

Before we get to all incredible new things you can now do with the Galaxy S21 5G, here are some of the specs that will grab your attention.


  • Both the Galaxy S21 5G and S21+ 5G boast a triple rear camera consisting of 12MP ultra-wide, 12MP wide, 64MP telephoto lens, and 10 MP front camera.
  • The S21 5G Ultra has a powerful quad-camera that features 108MP wide, 12MP ultra-wide, two 10MP zoom lenses, and a 40MP front camera.


Outstanding new features

Your Galaxy S21 5G camera experience isn’t only focused on hardware upgrades. Samsung has augmented your experience with enhanced software features including:


8K Video Snap – This innovative feature lets you grab crystal clear images from your 8K video footage, so you can capture all the live-action and get standout still shots every time you hit record. This means you can film an epic scene, for example of a bungee jump off Bloukrans, and then select moments as crystal clear high-resolution photos– ready to share.


New Director’s View – This impressive feature is a game-changer for anyone who wants to take their content to another level. It lets you see, switch, and select the best shot to tell your best story. You can capture video with the front and rear cameras at once for real-time reactions with Vlogger View, and preview or change the angle, zoom or go wide without losing any action with Live Thumbnails. Paired with Samsung’s new Galaxy Buds Pro[1], you can capture both ambient sounds and your voice at the same time using multiple mic recording[2]. That means you can set up Galaxy S21 5G in Pro Video Mode on a tripod and use Buds Pro as your voice mic, so you can step away and record speech, movement and background sound in crisp quality. It’s instant control and magic.


Single Take[3] – This intelligent feature harnesses the power of AI and allows you to capture a variety of still and video formats with one tap. It has been enhanced with new pro-style video settings like Highlight Video and Dynamic Slow-Mo, which lets you focus on the most compelling action in stunning stills and highlight reels. Basically, film one scene and receive a group of alternate photos and videos – automatically. Nobody needs to know how much the AI helped.


S- Pen – The Galaxy S21 5G Ultra also includes the capability to use the Galaxy Note series’ famous S Pen1 for the first time. This empowers you to draw, take notes, edit photos or even take a picture with the device set up from a distance. The S Pen compatibility means you can finesse and fine-tune while editing your videos down to the last frame, with the precision that your finger simply can’t touch. You’ll wonder how you ever got by without it.


It’s epic and its stunning

This is clearly smartphone technology designed for any skill level. For pros, it may be a reason to ditch the traditional camera and tripod bag. You can rather use and admire one beautiful device. Galaxy S21 5G was designed for those who want a light design and compact 6.2-inch display[4]. Galaxy S21+ 5G sports an expanded 6.7-inch display and a larger battery, perfect for marathon gamers and binge-watchers[5]. Galaxy S21 Ultra is the largest member of the Galaxy S21 series with a 6.8-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X display – it’s a device that is packed with the best of all the series innovations.


The Galaxy S21 5G series introduces an all-new, iconic Contour Cut Camera housing that seamlessly blends into the device’s metal frame for a sleek, yet striking, aesthetic. The series will be available in a range of eye-catching colours, including a new signature colour: Phantom Violet. And each device is coated with a luxurious haze finish on the back for a sophisticated look and feel.
